About this Webinar
Since qualifying in 2008 Vicky has studied with many world renowned teachers such as Rod Stryker, Doug Keller Julie Gudmestad and Leslie Howard.
Vicky’s teaching style is based around her own varied experience of yoga and through that has created a physically challenging class developing strength and suppleness while emphasising alignment and precision. All the time believing that yoga should be an individual and safe practice.
Vicky is registered with the Yoga Alliance as a senior registered yoga teacher and teacher trainer, teaches at triyoga in Camden, Ealing and Chelsea, and Paul’s Cancer Support Centre. She is also teaches applied anatomy on Julie Montagu’s and Carolyn Cowan’s teacher training course and has an extensive private client base.
In 2013 Vicky studied with Laura Kupperman on her “Yoga for Survivors” teacher training course and is now teaching yoga to cancer patients at any stage of their recovery. The classes are designed to provide a safe refuge to come and practice yoga, to build strength, increase range of motion and reduce stress. The classes should help you sleep better, feel less fatigued and enjoy a better quality of life.
Vicky runs a Teaching Yoga To Those Diagnosed with Cancer training so that more teachers can feel supported to teach these wonderful and supportive classes.
